In an earlier post we included a photo we took in Paris of a garden up the side of a building: this one is on an even grander scale. The garden up the facade of a 16-storey apartment installation was designed by French botanist Patrick Blanc in collaboration with Paris-based architects Ateliers Jean Nouvel.

All of the plants and flowers in the vertical gardens are carefully maintained by a special hydroponic system, which automatically waters them.
